Arts and Entertainment
Yakima Valley may be best known for its craft beverages, thanks to its thriving hops fields, vineyards and apple orchards. The Yakima Valley region produces more than 75 percent of the country’s hops, thanks to the area’s volcanic soil and climate. It is also home to more than 120 wineries as well as local cider-makers and distilleries.
The area produces more than 40 commercial crops, giving residents access to local produce and farmers’ markets throughout the year. Yakima restaurants and chefs frequently incorporate the area’s abundant fresh crops and quality craft beverages into their menus for an outstanding culinary experience.
Yakima Valley residents enjoy 300 sunny days each year, which allow plenty of opportunities to enjoy outdoor adventures like mountain biking, road biking, hiking, fishing, boating, whitewater rafting, river floating, kayaking, skiing, Nordic skiing, snowmobiling, snowshoeing, horseback riding, climbing and wildlife viewing.
The city’s cultural and arts scene is punctuated by the Yakima Valley Museum, downtown’s Capitol Theatre and Seasons Performance Hall, the Allied Arts Center, Larson Gallery, Yakima Symphony Orchestra and Yakima Area Arboretum, to name a few.
Yakima hosts many annual events each year, including the Central Washington State Fair, Yakima Forklife Festival, Fresh Hop Ale Festival, and A Case of the Blues and All That Jazz.
